WAR ON DRUGS: SENATOR LEILA DE LIMA VS. SENATOR ALAN CAYETANO AND GEN. BATO DE LA ROSA



The seemingly unstoppable drug crime in the Philippines, as well as the concern on extrajudicial killings by the Duterte administration because of the war on drugs and the anti-drug campaign that ties Senator De Lima to the cooking of the shabu at the Bilibid prison.  
De Lima is asking the current administration to stop the killings, and filed a bill proposing for an inquiry in aid of legislation. 
I think they are proposing drug rehab, drug rehabilitation of those victims because they are alarmed of the killings. I hope the drug-abuse history will also be brought to light for many-many years, those victim of rapes, robbery and murder because of drug addicts.

excerpt of the speech here
"Yes Mr. President, there is no shabu laboratory inside the Bilibid Prison, not even in the tunnels under it. Those who will search the tunnels will get a whiff not of the smell of cooking methamphetamine, but of methane that comes from the human waste of the prisoners above. Sa termino ko lang po bilang Justice Secretary nag-umpisang maglinis sa Bilibid. Sa termino ko lang po giniba ang mga mararangyang kubol ng drug lords at naitapon sila sa Building 14, hiwalay sa mga ordinaryong preso. But of course, all of this has been 4 sorely forgotten in the face of a formidable demolition campaign against me in the social media. This is where I raise the matter of personal privilege. 

Mr. President, I have been vilified and attacked, not only in social media but also by the President’s men, as a drug lord coddler and protector. I have been ridiculed and called names in social media. Photos are photoshopped, videos are spliced, lies are manufactured. The magnitude of the propaganda and misinformation is mind-boggling, considering that this is all directed at me. The lies are intended to show me as protector of the Bilibid drug lords. But the truth is I was the only Justice Secretary since the 1986 EDSA Revolution who dared to eradicate the dominion of the drug lords inside Bilibid. I was put to task by no less than the Speaker of the House, as a sitting Senator of the same Congress that he leads. According to him, a resolution will be filed for an investigation on my alleged role in the proliferation of drugs inside the National Bilibid Prison. 


Mr. President, this not only goes against inter-parliamentary courtesy, where the House of Representatives investigates a specific member of its co-equal Senate. It is an affront to the Senate as an institution committed by none other than the leader of its coequal body in Congress."
